neurotypicals will never be able to understand what it feels like to be mischaracterized, misunderstood, talked down to, ridiculed, to be the butt of a joke (and being FULLY FUCKING AWARE OF IT), or singled out just because we communicate differently. they will never understand the anguish neurodivergent people go through on a daily basis. 

for us neurodivergent people, getting up in the morning or doing really anything can be a gigantic hassle, which is why a majority of us need support or medication to help us get through the day. for the unlucky few who are undiagnosed and have no medication to make life a breeze, their lives are absolute hell. we can't think clearly, our grades are low, our self esteem is damaged, more likely to think ..thoughts, we have to "mask" our personality to be liked (doesn't work half the time), hard time identifying what is "relevant" information to share, constantly under intense (social) stress, hard time communicating "properly".. etc etc.

these are major reasons why a lot of neurodivergent people don't tend to live that long.

life is usually way easier socially for neurotypical people, you got your social hierarchy, your friends, you're probably a lot more and social and get along with people easily, you can read social cues well with little misunderstanding, you guys understand when you need to read a "hidden meaning" in someones sentence (i think that's weird), i could go on and on. you guys will never understand how lucky you are for hitting the social lottery, a majority of nd people can't do the things i mentioned above. 

it is so hard and exhausting to just exist as a neurodivergent person.

most of us wish we were neurotypical too, so we wouldn't have to deal with any of this.

i certainly do, i wish i could understand the way you guys speak, so that we could communicate to eachother better, but i know, and we all know, no matter how hard we try it will never be enough. you will hate us regardless and there is nothing any of us can do about it.
